Track Star Allyson Felix’s Fifth Olympics Is About More Than Medals

Following a traumatic birth experience, track star Allyson Felix turned to activism—testifying before Congress about Black maternal mortality and writing an op-ed about her now former sponsor Nike’s policies on protections for pregnant women. Now Felix has her own shoe line and she’s admired as much for her advocacy as for her athleticism.» Subscribe to NBC News: http://nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC

  1. Nike was just doing women dirty. Allyson was the second woman I know of who spoke about about their treatment of pregnant women.
    These woman are out here working, training and making more PEOPLE so Nike can sell their products. Nike definitely needed to get a grip — to say the least.

  2. what a Woman!!!. she chose Life, she advocates for the health of Black women who have a scary high amount of issues with childbirth (which by itself makes her a superhero and is something that badly needs to be studied and worked at to end this tragic happening ) I was a fan before watching this, I think she's unstoppable now, or at least I pray she is! we should all take up her cause and push for serious study to be put forth in hopes of ending the high mortality rate of Black babies. Our children are our future, they should all be there to be that future and we are losing too many Black children from that mix.

  3. The bubble prevention that the Japanese government promised is not working.
    The number of new Corona 19 confirmed in Tokyo, where the 2020 Tokyo Olympics are underway, has exceeded 5,000.
    According to NHK, a Japanese public broadcaster, Tokyo said on May 5, the number of new confirmed Korona is 5024.
    The organization said that 31 new confirmed Olympic-related players were involved in the event, which resulted in a total of 353 people in the competition, which was confirmed by Corona 19.
    Again, the world's eyes The Japanese government is concerned about the poor measures to prevent the disease

  4. My girl did Her thang,keep during great Work ,God bless 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿You'll, We are So proud of you With Love❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  5. Congrats, Allyson!!!
    What an amazing woman and mother…
    Needless to say, she's been bright on the track but, aside from that, she has something mesmerizing people for sure. She sounds intelligent and like integrity.
